You probably have heard about IELTS (the International English Language Testing System). Do you know that there are more and more people learning Chinese now and there is also an official Chinese language proficiency test called HSK?

What is the HSK?

The Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) is China’s national standardized test designed and developed by the HSK Centre of Beijing Language and Culture University to assess the Chinese language proficiency of non-native speakers. The standard HSK test (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi) assesses the test takers’ ability to in listening and reading comprehension and is an important part of the Chinese testing system. These are standardized exams for Chinese language proficiency and are aimed at non-native Chinese speakers of all levels. The HSK is a highly valued tool used in the assessing those with aspirations for study, research and employment in China.

Reasons to undertake the HSK include:

  • Evaluate your Mandarin abilities
  • Receive official recognition for your language skills
  • For Queensland school students, gain credit towards the Queensland Certificate of Education (Test levels 2 to 6, conditions apply).
    Completion of a HSK test can allow secondary students between years 11 and 12 in Queensland to gain credit for their language studies outside of the normal school curriculum. Different levels of the HSK test are implemented by the Confucius Institute at the University of Queensland who are responsible for providing the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) with the student’s successful results.
  • Results may be useful for study and work applications to China
  • Expand vocabulary through the test preparation materials
